Amy the sloth almost ready to get released!
Amy the two toed sloth arrived in August 2015 at the Rescue Center with a open wound in her face. Turned out it was a machete cut. Cleaning and disinfecting the wound was more complicated than we first thought because of its depth. Lots of disinfectants where too aggressive for the mucous membranes. Because of the very slow metabolism of sloths in general, healing processes can take very long. Fortunately our Amy looks much better now and we are looking forward to release her soon!
